The Central London Fabian Society (CLFS) has been in continuous operation for over seventy years. 

We’re an active, local Fabian society based in central London. While the majority of our in person events are held at or near the Fabian central office in Westminster, our events are currently all online and are open to all Fabian members with an interest in exploring left-wing ideas and history.

We currently run a monthly discussion group, Everything Left, and are engaged in conducting historical research into the international impact of Fabianism from 1884 to date. Before lockdown, we ran a popular series of quarterly ‘country walks’, which we hope to resume as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.  

Current activities

Everything Left

Everything Left is the Central London Fabians’ monthly discussion group on left-wing topics. It is a series of guided, participatory conversations on some of the thorniest, most contested and strangest ideas and issues in left-wing thinking – from the brand new to those that stubbornly refuse to die.

Everything Left meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month, online via Zoom, 6.30-8pm. RSVP

Historical Research

Fabian local history is on the rise. Building on grassroots historical studies by Bournemouth and Oxford local Fabian societies, the Central London Fabians are embarking upon thorough historical research into our historical roots.

Country Walks

Prior to lockdown, the Central London Fabians held quarterly ‘country walks’ in scenic and historically interesting parts of London. The walks, which were a great opportunity to explore the capital with like minded and interesting people, will be resumed as soon as it is both safe and practical. Watch this space!
